Rottenness, Gorgatron, Cyruss, Decius
ROTTENNESS is a brutal death metal band hailing from Merida, Mexico and the midwestern United States. Guitarist Jaleel Castillo founded the band in the late 90’s and immediately hit the road touring Mexico, the United States, Europe and South America—playing hundreds of shows in dozens of countries, including festival performances at Obscene Extreme, Meh Suff, Bogota Deathfest, and Maryland Deathfest, alongside tours with MALIGNANCY, FUCK THE FACTS, CEPHALIC CARNAGE and many more.
Death Metal from Fargo North Dakota since ‘06 Gorgatron’s sound is based on a “love of the riff” approach to writing and rooted in the old-school stylingsof Death Metal and Thrash.
The Stoner/Sludge/Hardcore band was a vital part of the Viennese scene in the mid-2000s over the period of 2
albums. They played with bands of their time like KYLESA, DOZER, ATOMIC BITCHWAX, THE OCEAN, SUMA,
CULT OF LUNA, HIGH ON FIRE, PELICAN, THEMA 11, WEEDEATER or A STORM OF LIGHT. As an “Arena”
basement band they were part of the legendary event series ROADTRIP TO OUTTA SPACE at the “Arena” in
Vienna at the very beginning. They disbanded in 2009.
In 2017 they reanimated the band to play with BONGZILLA, a band which they cherish very much. This was
meant to be a one-off thing, however it resulted in the foundation of follow-up project DESOLAT. CYRUSS still
play live occasionally.
At the apex of Covid bore-out in Winter 2020/21 it was decided to prepare for a visit to the studio to record a
new release. 5 old songs that had never been recorded were dug out, the arrangements were reworked and
refined, and even a new song was written and recorded.
So now it is 2023, and 14 years after the actual disbanding, and 16 years after the emergence of the second
album „Hate Songs“ a new third (mini)album aptly titled „Hate Dies Last“ is going to be released. Thanks to
Covid. A last sign of life in the form of a physical release to round up the history of this band.
Decius was founded in march 2007 in the area of Dornbirn / Austria. Several shows were played in countries like Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Romania, Slovakia and Czech Republic. First demo-CD was recorded shortly after writing the first songs in 2007 and their first full length "Lord Of Mercy" was released in June 2009.
Await to meet Decius on stage and await the release of their new album in 2018!!!
